Former NBA baller Tracy McGrady has been playing in China since October. On Tuesday the Eagles played their last pre-season game and the fans were not happy with Tracy McGrady only playing 98 seconds.
McGrady scored five points in the first two minutes but sat the rest of the game.
Better believe those in attendance noticed. Toward the end of the game, fans started throwing objects on the court to show their disgust. According to NIUBball.com, the objects included water bottles and lighters before the game was called.
It turns out McGrady was sick. Or at least he told the crowd that to settle things down.
He took a microphone and told the fans:
“Sorry I wasn’t able to play tonight, due to certain circumstances and the conditions–me being under the weather.”
This had to make the fans feel terrible about their actions.
After the game was called, McGrady was escorted out. On his way out, he was nice enough to toss souvenirs into the stands to please the crowd, as you can see in the picture in gallery. Class guy for a hostile crowd.
